Birla Carbon was recognized as a leading supplier to Pirelli at an awards ceremony held by the tyre maker in September. The company was only carbon black supplier to receive the award from Pirelli.
John Loudermilk, Birla Carbon’s president of North America and Europe and Africa, accepted the award for the company and remarked: “At Birla Carbon, we feel honoured and appreciated by the commendation bestowed on us by Pirelli. As a world leader in carbon black, it is our constant endeavour to ensure our customers receive their supplies on time every time with the highest quality.”
The Birla executive added that Pirelli presented the supplier award to nine of its 9,500 suppliers, making the award even more special for Birla Carbon.
The carbon black manufacturer also won a Golden Peacock Award for Sustainability at an event in London in October. The award was conferred by the Institute of Directors of India at the 16th London Global Convention on Corporate Governance and Sustainability.
